LSK Launches Probe As Almost All Who Sat For Bar Exams Last Year Fails

Eighty-two per cent of the law students who sat for the bar examinations at the Kenya School of Law last year have flopped and will have to resit the examinations.

The examinations that were sat for in November last year had their results released this Tuesday. Daily Updates Africa is in possession of a copy of the results and they paint nothing but a gloomy picture.
Out of the 1500 that sat for the exam, 290 passed. This means that eighteen per cent of the students qualified to practice law.

The results of this year are not anything new. A task force led by Fred Ojiambo, a lawyer, released in 2017 shows that from 2009 to 2016 only 7530 out of 16086 students passed the bar exams while 8,549 failed. That is a staggering failure rate of 53 per cent over the eight years.

The mass failures at the Kenya School of Law has prompted the Law Society of Kenya to launch an investigation to determine the main cause of this worrying trend. A task force which has been in place since May last year will hand over its report to LSK within a period of three weeks from now.

Resitting an exam is a very expensive affair. The exams which are set and marked by the Council for Legal Education cost Ksh10000 for each paper re-sit, and Ksh15000 for each paper re-marked. There are nine papers in total. Should all those who failed decide to resit the papers, CLE and KSL will come out of it all Ksh27,000,000 richer.

Statistics show that a majority of those who resit the papers fail again and have to resit for a second time to qualify to practice.

Many Kenyans who have previously sat the exam say that there is a great disconnect between what is taught in KSL classes and what is examined by CLE. The CEO of KSL has however downplayed the mass failure outcries and said an independent evaluator has been contracted to determine the exact problem that is ailing law students in the country.
